Footpath on Chosen Hill, Churchdown. Chosen Hill shown within Gloucestershire. Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust nature reserve Gerald Finzi spent New Year's Eve 1925 at the Sexton's Cottage by the church, and the ringing in of the new year inspired two works - the orchestral Nocturne (New Year Music) (1926) and his choral work In Terra Pax (1954).
from PART III - Howells the Instrumental Composer. Many years ago, in the 1960s, when even Howells's chamber music was little known, the present author attended a rehearsal of the Piano Quartet (HH 66), which bears the dedication ‘To the Hill at Chosen and to Ivor Gurney who knows it’. The music was unfamiliar to the performers, and the pianist read this dedication out to his colleagues and they all smirked in a condescending way before going on to play the music quite beautifully.
Dru Hill is the self-titled debut studio album from American R&B group Dru Hill, released November 19, 1996 on Island Records. The album featured four singles "Tell Me", "In My Bed", "Never Make a Promise" and "5 Steps". All of the singles had music videos released. The album also features the So So Def remix of "In My Bed", which features Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat, as a bonus track, which also had a music video released.
Howells was born in Lydney, Gloucestershire, the youngest of the six children of Oliver Howells, a plumber, painter, decorator and builder, and his wife Elizabeth, his father played the organ at the local Baptist church, and Herbert himself showed early musical promise, first deputising for his father, and then moving at the age of eleven to the local Church of England parish. In 1949, the organist Herbert Sumsion asked Howells if he had anything that could be performed at the 1950 Three Choirs Festival to be held at Gloucester. Howells decided to bring out the incomplete choral work he had written in his son Michael's memory between 1936 and 1938.
